Pure Good Wiki

The things I do for love.
~ Courage's catchphrase.

Courage is the titular main protagonist of the Courage the Cowardly Dog. He is the pet dog to Muriel Bagge and Eustace Bagge. He is shown to always to go out of his way to save Muriel whenever she is in danger.

He was voiced by Marty Grabstein.



Courage is shown to deeply care about Muriel and is willing to keep her safe from any villain and danger. He is shown to risk his life to rescue and save Muriel and Eustace. Despite Eustace's contempt and hatred for Courage, the latter is still willing to save him. In spite of getting scared easily, Courage makes an effort to protect those he cares for. Courage is also shown to defend others who are being picked on like the Hunchback from the episode "The Hunchback from Nowhere", the latter being made fun of and called ugly by Eustace. Courage is also willing to save others from danger as seen in "Katz Under the Sea" where he saved multiple people from Katz's bombing of the submarine.

What Makes him Pure Good?

  • He is willing to go out of his way to protect Eustace, despite the latter's hatred of Courage.
  • He saved multiple people in the town of Nowhere multiple times like saving multiple people from a bombing of a submarine in "Katz Under the Sea".

  • He is shown to stick up for others who gets bullied. The most notable example was in the episode "The Hunchback of Nowhere", where he supported the Hunchback who was getting bullied by Eustace.
  • Compared to his many fears and anxiety, Courage is the bravest character in the series, as he has to get over his fears to the biggest extent.
  • With the exception of Katz, Courage is always willing to forgive his enemies as soon as he does not deem them as threatening anymore. The most known example was in the episode "The Mask", where he held no grudge for Kitty's physical violence toward him, as he realized what her friend had been through. Even in the brief moment where he did judge her harshly, he was more afraid for Muriel's well-being than for his own.
  • In the Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo! Meets Courage The Cowardly Dog movie, Courage becomes very brave and fight Katz (only inside of the giant cicada) and he was never scared of him, he did his best to defeat the Giant Cicada especially he wanted to protect Scooby-Doo and his friends.
  • While he rude to his computer, this is justified as this computer himself rude to Courage.


  • Courage appears to be the only Pure Good Character of the series.
  • While Courage risk his life multiple times, he was defeated once in the Crossover Nexus where Strike turned him into stone. This might possibly happen to his other appearances such as losing to Freaky Fred after him being shown in TV even as the unreleased Pibby media, Courage was never shown anywhere in Pibby especially he never made an appearance with Muriel.
